I have been trying to find out who this one girl on campus is. She looks and carries herself very similarly to both Jill and Chellie Lee, so obviously I want to find out who she is. I guess some people in my hall know her, but only slightly.

I’m also a little bit saddened from various things, the most prevalent being that there are people who I am making an effort to talk to and remain involved with them, but they simply dont respond to any of my communications anymore. I know some of them are busy, but they could at least tell me that or something instead of remaining silent.

Rosa Parks died, by the way. Just in case you didn’t hear the news…

I have been trying out this new browser called Flock. I use it alot, mainly for blogging. It is in a developers release, so there are plenty of bugs that need to be fixed, and features to be implemented. However, the things it does are very cool.

Integrated blog editor (best one I have ever used) which includes a Technorati pinger and easily adds Technorati tags.

Online favorites through Del.Icio.Us means that you will be able to access your favorites anywhere

Flickr topbar means that I can drag and drop my photos into my posts easily. Like this:

    There is also this thing called a “Shelf.” You can drag all sorts of stuff from any site you go to to the Shelf and store it for easy access later, complete with links and all. This makes blogging and research projects a snap.
    It all is so good so far. In fact, I posted this using Flock. You just have to wait for a good stable build intended for the general public. I’ll keep you informed.

The Last Words

October 25, 2005

From the final Five Iron Frenzy concert, after the last song and after the crowd chanting “Thank you” over and over:

“There’s an Ogallala Sioux Chief who’s named Sitting Bull.
Before the Battle of Little Bighorn, he turned, he turned to some of his chiefs
and he said “Today is a good day to die.” Today is a good day to die.

In the Bible, there is a story about the prophet Elijah. At
the end of his life, he takes off his cloak and he hands it down to the person
he has taught his whole life; Elisha. He gives him his cloak, and with it, a
blessing. To carry twice, twice the grace he has been given. Twice the faith. May
you do twice as much. So tonight, this is what is happening to you. We’re
passing the mantle. Do good things with it. Remember that God loves you. Remember
that all He requires of you is to love Him with all your heart and to love
others as yourself. We’ll sing one more song, and then you guys can go home.
Hopefully we’ll see some of you tomorrow. We’ll see you around someday anyway.”
